In addition to China, Turkey is in contact with Russia on the COVID-19 vaccine, the Turkish president said on Friday.
Axar.az reports Turkish media he added he could be vaccinated to set an example for the nation.
“We have [ongoing] talks with Russia, as well as China. On this issue, I personally have no problem with being vaccinated,” President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told reporters following Friday prayers in the Turkish metropolitan city of Istanbul.
Erdogan said it was a step that should be taken to set an example for the nation, and noted that when it comes to health, whatever needed has to be done.
On a so-called French resolution recognizing Nagorno-Karabakh as an independent state, Erdogan said France has lost its mediator role within the OSCE Minsk group.
“[French President Emmanuel] Macron is trouble for France. With Macron, France is going through a very dangerous time. I hope that France will get rid of the Macron trouble as soon as possible,” Erdogan said.
He also recalled Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev’s Dec. 1 remarks against the French resolution, which said: "If France wants this so much, it can give [the southern French region of] Marseille to Armenians".
“I give the same advice [to France],” Erdogan noted, adding: “As simple as that.”
